Tour Itinerary

Medinet Habu Tour:
Medinet Habu is the Arabic name for the Mortuary Temple of Ramses III, a huge complex second only to Karnak in size and better preserved. Medinet Habu is among the least visited of the major sights at Luxor, but it deserves more attention than it gets. The Mortuary Temple of Ramses III itself is made of sandstone and provides a good idea of what the Ramesseum, its model, looked like before it collapsed. The First Pylon is about the same size as that of Luxor Temple, but has lost its cornice and one corner. The reliefs on the pylon show Ramses defeating the Nubians (left side) and Syrians (right side), though in reality he fought neither.
Ramesseum Temple Tour

The ancient Egyptians called the temple the “million years temple” due to its huge surface area, an incredible fifty thousand meters, and perhaps due to the gigantic size of the statues of Ramses II that were built there. The huge complex, dedicated to the god Amun, took 20 years and tens of thousands of workers to build. This temple was constructed to serve two purposes. The temple was publicly constructed to enable the ancient Egyptians to practice their religious rituals, including prayer and ritual offerings to the gods. It was also, and perhaps more so, built to demonstrate the greatness of the Pharaoh, and his political and military achievements. The Ramesseum Temple was made up by two huge walls. A huge inner wall surrounded the temple itself while an outer wall surrounded the storage rooms and smaller buildings of the temple. A wide corridor connected these two walls, decorated with of sphinxes, in a manner similar to that built between the Luxor Temple and the Karnak Temple in the East bank of Luxor. Then you will be transferred back to your hotel /cruise in Luxor.
